According to a report from Football Insider, West Ham are monitoring West Brom ace Matheus Pereira, ahead of a potential summer move for the play-maker.

The 23-year-old is currently on loan with the Baggies from Sporting Lisbon.

And A Bola claims that West Brom will trigger a £9 million obligation-to-buy clause in Pereira’s contract as soon as he starts his 30th game for Slaven Bilic’s side.

Because of Covid-19, however, that is all up in the air at the moment.

If the Baggies do complete the permanent signing of Pereira though, they will surely not want to lose him straight away.

Football Insider claims that the Hammers could make a summer move for the West Brom ace, however.

 

The Brazilian ace has really impressed at the Hawthorns this season, so you would imagine that West Ham would have to offer West Brom a huge fee in order to tempt them into selling the winger.

He has racked up six goals and 16 assists in 33 Championship outings for the Black Country outfit this season (Transfermarkt).

In those 33 league outings, Pereira has averaged 39.5 passes per game, with an incredibly impressive completion rate of 80.6%. He has also averaged 2.5 key passes per game (Who Scored).

The South American is clearly a very exciting talent.

And if West Ham do really want to sign him in the summer, they will have to make West Brom an offer that they simply cannot refuse.
